I wish I had a really cool Monday update, but the day was spent mostly at doctor’s office. I do what I can while I am home.
Lunch was quick, then we swung by my dad’s office so I could do some work, aka print out my plane ticket.
Then it was on to the next doctor’s appointment, where I think I found a new pair of glasses.
Later in the day I was able to meet up with my last friend still living in Lubbock, Simon. Unfortunately he won’t be staying in Lubbock for long, which means next time I will probably be friendless.
Sorry vegans, but Simon asked that I showcase his bacon cheddar fries on the blog, and since he was kind enough to meet me for a drink, I obliged.
We met up at Skooners, a local bar, where I spent many, many Friday’s (and Saturday’s) in college. The catch? Giant schooners of beer. You can’t go wrong (especially for $1.75).
After Skooners, I swung by to see my friend Allison. RANDOMLY, Allison was in town visiting family. Her and her husband live in Seattle, and they had a kid not too long ago…about 8 months. She is my first friend with a kid, and it’s freakin’ awesome.
Allison and I met in high school, and we shared a love of all thing German. She is really awesome, and one of the smartest people I know. A few years ago she was living in Germany with her husband Tim, and my mom and I just happened to be hanging out in Europe for a few weeks so we got to hang out a lot. I think that’s when our friendship really solidified.
Anyways, I finally got to meet her and Finn, who is so lucky to have Tim and Allison as parent’s.
I spent the rest of the evening at home, eating dinner, packing, and teaching my parent’s how to foam roll. My dad is hoping to run a half marathon with me later this year and I am trying to keep him injury free.
And at this moment I am flying back to Philly! I can’t wait to see Eric and the cats!
